Rehovot ha-Nahar was founded in the Yissacharoff synagogue of the Bukharian quarter of Jerusalem's new city. The founder was R. Nissim Nahum of Tripoli, with the assistance of R. Hayyim Shaul Dweck of Aleppo.This yeshiva was devoted to the kavvanot practice and operated around the clock. The daily schedule began with nightly immersion in the ritual bath (mikvah), the performance of the midnight vigil (Tiqqun Hazot) and the full recitation of prayers with Sharabis version of the kavvanot.This institution served as a center for the Aleppo scholars and came to include other newcomers to Jerusalem from Yemen and the west, as well as a significant contingent of Ashkenazim. The leaders of the ascetic Ashkenazim of Jerusalem, as well as the Hasidic rabbinical court, gave their approbation to R. Hayyim Shaul Dweck.
